The arts community in Sonoma County has mobilized to create and share work about October’s fires. Some of that creative output is already on display.
The phrase “second responders” has been used about artists, mental health professionals and others helping our community cope with grief and loss since the North Bay fires. An exhibition at the Chroma Gallery in Santa Rosa features work by artists processing their own reactions to October’s events, and using art to help heal their neighbors. J. Mateo Baker paid a visit to the gallery and has this report.
